Anyim Nyerere who was former APC vice chairman South East said in an interview that lack of visionary leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party PDP has kept the state as most underdeveloped state in South East, adding that 2019 election will mark the end of misrule in the state.

According to the APC Chieftain, “snake must give birth to something long. What are their antecedents?  What are they known for? Non performance. Abians are suffering and crying for freedom. No good road, non-payment, multiple taxation and lack of vision and planning. The only solution for Abia is this change we are talking.

“PDP has a system. You can’t plant maize and expect to harvest beans. It’s left for Abians to be conscious of what they have plunged themselves. Nobody should expect anything different from this government in Abia, that’s an extension of the last administration.

“You must consider that by 2019, we will be talking about 20 years of PDP’s inglorious leadership and governance. With what is happening at the centre, where it is no longer business as usual, those things that made PDP in Abia to be where they are today;  the machinery they used to ascend to power in the past is no longer business as usual.

“The APC would have itself to blame if it fails to win Abia state in 2019. Abia State is ripe for APC. Even the PDP has been campaigning for us and making our march to the governorship and legislative seats easier.”
